Suuuhhhwweeeeett..... but what's that "HDD 7200Rpm with Twin Processor" bit??? I've never heard of it :confused:

 

Nice sound you've got there :)

Mine's SPDIF'ed into my HiFi (speakers either side of my monitor).

 

I want a 21inch monitor too... but my dad's too damn tight! He reckons my 17inch one is more than enough... what is he on??!!? (j/k, I suppose ;))

His parents are far worse tho... thay're practically millionaires (n/k), and tighter than Monty Burns!!! :eek:

 

Ahh well, never mind, there's always xmas :D :D

1.2 ghz AMD Athlon drive (8 fans, must be safe u know)

256mb Ram

ATI Radeon 8500

40gb hd space

60x CD-ROM

Zip Drive

anyway i hope there's an option for how long it stays.

 

8 FANS?! You must be some serious overclocker...

 

I got 6 fans total in my computer (1 on CPU, 1 on the GeForce II, 1 on Northbridge I think [the one with VIA icon on it] , 2 Chassis case fan, 1 Power supply fan)

 

This is what happens if you don't have ENOUGH fans...

Why not use your CPU heat to do something useful...like:

Radeon8500, ouch... :-)

How is that Radeon8500 doing with other games? Is it better than the original Radeon? ****, I sure hope so, a total of two or three of my 40 games or so ran with the original Radeon so I got a GF2 GTS. Ahh! :p:cool::D:o:);)

A normal Hard Disk has one processor. But I paid loads extra so I have two that work in parallel which means it can transfer data at twice the normal speed......Hell, I rarely get to see loading screens with my PC.......lol........and I only upgraded it for JK2 :)

This is why I upgraded for JK2.............

 

MY old system :

 

P2 233 o/c to 291 Mhz

4.2 GB HDD

24x CD Rom

Only 64MB...and NOT DDR Ram

Voodoo 3 3000 16Mb

Only 2 speakers !!

 

Now that is why I upgraded........oh yea, and because my Dad was paying and I caught him in a good mood........I also told him I needed it for work in college :p

I read in numerous places that the Athlon outperforms Pentiums.

That's price to performance. So a cheaper athlon will do better than an expensive P4. I don't have the numbers on hand though.

 

And Athlons an handle more instructions per clock cycle.

I upgraded not to long ago to an Intel P4 2.0 with 512 megs of PC800 memory. Videocard is a Geforce 3 ti 200 with 64 megs of ram. I find performance extremely fast and stable with the latest games and demos. I'm running at very high resolutions in 32bit color on a 19 inch Sony Trinitron monitor. Please remember when games and drivers take better advantage of the P4 instruction sets performance will increase even further.
